BATON ROUGE - Investigators are looking into an apartment fire started under suspicious circumstances, according to the St. George Fire Department.

The fire was brought under control in ten minutes, and investigators said they found the building completely unoccupied with no utilities connected.

Fire investigators at the scene said the fire was of "suspicious origin" and they're working to determine the specific cause at this time.
